  1. Queens v Inverness

    Tom Parratt! Although as you only want "notable" players he probably doesnt apply.
  2. Black Scottish Footballers

    Significant moment a few days ago. Kevin Harper was given the management job at Albion Rovers becoming one of the few black managers to manage in the spfl. Also Ethan Erhahon had by all means a good debut in his first start for St Mirren. Only 17.
  3. Queens v Morton

    Well played Morton. After getting absolutely smashed on saturday you would think their confidence would be abit fragile but they came here and defended brilliantly. Buchanan won countless headers and the wingbacks were effective in stopping our players from putting in crosses from dangerous areas. We didnt play badly its just we missed that creative touch. Todd and Stirling each had one excellent half each but couldnt sustain it for the full game. I thought Marsh was very good and Mercer had a fine game. The criticism he gets is ott imo. He uses the ball well and has decent quality in his crossing. Hes also far more assertive in his defending than when he first came. Norman was my star man tonight. Hes a battler but not only that he also has a bit of composure and uses the ball pretty well. We really suffered having a small squad tonight as this was a classic case of a game where impact subs could have made a massive difference. I looked at our bench and saw literally nothing. We all no Irving, Gourlay, Ivison the manager has no intention of using and Bell would only be used if we were winning comfortably, while Murray was just about our only one who could make an impact. Semple is obviously fine defensive cover.
  4. QotS v Falkirk

    Paul Paton really is as bad as Falkirk fans say he was honking. Was very impressed with Todd today. Used the ball brilliantly and beat his man time and again.
  5. Dunfermline v Queens

    Did Norman look any good?
  6. Dunfermline v Queens

    Outwith Dobbie Id have Semple and to an extent Doyle as our best players this season so very dissapointed hes dropped unless as said he has a niggle.
  7. The Queen of the South Thread

    Also because in the aftermath of the Falkirk game the manager said hed look to bring in defensive cover and clearly hes not a defender so hopefully this is still the case.
  8. The Queen of the South Thread

    What was lineup? Hopefully can nab a few on loan from St Johnstone. Was dissapointed to see Jack Aitchison from Celtic go to Dumbaton on loan as he could have been a decent option for us.
  9. Your Club's Top 5 Arseholes

    George O'Boyle (druggie) Leon Knight (nutcase) David Bagan (hazy memory but sure he posed with St Johnstone gear while still at us Barry John Corr (Sure he stormed off after one particular horror show) John Baird/Mark Kerr (moles who tried to undermine the manager) Kerr at least had the decency to be a great player for us Mark Millar (fat overweight wage thief)
  10. The Queen of the South Thread

    Pushing it abit to class Exley as a "signing" just some 17 year old kid from our youth team. Even Watson doesnt really feel anything more than a development signing. Still need a striker and winger
  11. The Queen of the South Thread

    Finally got a name to the trialist cb. Callum Semple fae Sheffield United
  12. The Queen of the South Thread

    Thought we played pretty well tbh. As stated Bell done well again. Both trialists done good tonight. Doyle is a great leader and if there is other interest it has to be a good sign he is still with us. Its a good thing that wasnt the Irn Bru cup as the Hearts 1st team would have been put out by our colts in the 2nd half.
  13. The Queen of the South Thread

    Well now Morgan, Sibbald and Halkett are no longer in the league for me Dobbs is out on his own as streets ahead. We have no idea how the Falkirk lads will be. Harkins has proven over the years and even last year that when fitted in the right kind of system hes a truly class player. Good in the air tick, can tackle tick, two footed tick, physical tick, can use both feet tick, drops deep to start attacks tick, scores goals tick. When he has someone like Dobbs alongside him you will see him at his brilliant best. Id like to hear who people think are better than him when hes on his game! Especially midfielders
  14. The Queen of the South Thread

    If we could add in 4 quality players our squad would be more than decent. We have the 2 best players in the league already in Dobbie and Harkins. If Dykes and Marsh keep improving then they can supplement them. Then you add in solid players for our level, (Fordyce, Jacobs, Martin, Mercer) and hopefully the versatile Doyle should he sign. Then you have Bell. I know its pre season but I have been very impressed with his confidence and ability. He looks ready to provide useful cover. Stirling can provide more to now he has shed beef. Then we have Brownlie and Todd to come back. So we have a few sensational players and several decent. If we could add the correct signings (hopefully more sensational/decent) then maybe we can have a surprisingly good season.
